EA Sports' long-running college football series returns to campus with a new mode and enough updates and adjustments to fill a college textbook in NCAA Football 13 for PlayStation 3. The most significant change for this season is an emphasis on more realistic passing and pass defense, with "Total Control Passing" allowing quarterbacks to take specific dropbacks, pump fake, and change the trajectory of each pass, and the new "Read & React Defense" producing more realistic reactions from linebackers and defensive backs by requiring them to see the ball before they make a play on it.

In the spirit of the title's late-1990s classics, the 2010 Xbox 360 edition of Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit revolves around high-speed car chases through winding countryside highways and bustling village streets, giving players license to drive as both escaping speedsters and pursuing police.

In the realm where puerile plotlines and locker-room humor meet hardcore shooter action, Duke is king, and after a decade-long hiatus, the king returns in Duke Nukem Forever. With development completed by Gearbox Software for a 2011 release, the game incorporates many contemporary first-person shooter features, but the destructible surroundings, larger-than-life enemies, and high-adventure pacing are in classic Duke Nukem form.

Available weapon set-ups include two-fisted

Control of your favorite collegiate basketball team and the responsibilities that come with it by acting as manager, coach, and player, or create your very own squad and school in College Hoops 2K7. "Legacy" mode offers improved recruiting tools and bracketology, along with customization options for uniforms, schools, logos, and arenas.

While Sonic and Tails are out to retrieve them, they are cut short by Knuckles the Echidna.
